  • Addax- the Sahara's largest indigenous mammal, the addax travels in small herds throughout the Western Sahara, Mauritania and Chad. A creature of the dunes, the addax rarely drinks water. Instead, it sucks moisture from the desert grasses and bushes that make up its daily food requirements.
why is an oasis important
Why is an oasis important?
  • An Oasis is important because an oasis can vary in size from about 2.5 acres for a tiny village to larger farm lands. At its hub is water, often in the form of natural springs, artesian wells or entire irrigation systems. About 75 percent of the Sahara's population lives in oases, which make up only a tiny 800 square miles of the desert's vast sea of sand and gravel? The date palm is most characteristic of the vegetation that flourishes there. Other typical food sources grown in Saharan oases include figs, peaches, citrus fruits, wheat and barley. The word "oasis" is believed to come from an ancient Egyptian word, "wash," meaning "fertile place in the desert."

  • Regs- These plains of sand and black, red or white gravel make up 70 percent of the Sahara. The Libyan reg stretches for 340,000 square miles; the Tanezrouft reg, to the west of the Ahaggar Mountains, stretches for 200,000 square miles. The remains of prehistoric seas and rivers, the regs are now nearly completely waterless. Plant life is sparse; animal life is mostly limited to rodents.
  • Chotts- Chotts are depressions that fill with salt once moisture from the Sahara's winter rains evaporates in the spring and summer. Large chotts occur throughout the northern Sahara. Key scenes from "The English Patient" and "Star Wars" were filmed in a large chott in western Tunisia called wChott el Djerid.
